The Kings’ Highway in Jordan is the world’s oldest continuously used communication route. It used to link ancient Bashan, Gilad, and Ammon in the north with Moab, Edom, Paran, and Midian in the south. This scenic route winds, drops, twists, and meanders through the heart of the Jordanian highlands, passing through the country’s most spectacular landscapes and some of its most important ancient sites. But words can’t do it it justice.
I wish that I could have truly captured its beauty, ingraining it in my brain to share with my family and future generations. Its beauty is beyond words. Rather than resting during our travel, I couldn’t take my eyes off of the highway. It rivals Route 1 in California as my favorite highway yet.
I wasn’t in a hurry to get somewhere; I felt like I’d already arrived.
Travel isn’t a destination, it’s the journey!
